    Finally got a chance to do some riding on these roads and thought I'd post my perspective as a visitor. Rented a Raleigh Revenio from West Orange Trail Bikes & Blades. Nice shop, I'd recommened it....

    I'm thinking about doing a route this weekend that includes Grapevine Rd from Genesee to Idledale. The other ~50 miles of the route will be all road so I'll be out on my skinny bald tires. Is...

    1. Well they do slide in and out too easily for my comfort. The original is very snug (which is why I pulled the thing apart to begin with)
    2. I don't think so. The light side is still solid.

    So I went to Radio Shack and got a package of 2 connectors, 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm without the leads. I cut back and stripped the wires coming from the headlight and soldered them to the connector. Before...

    Cool. If I can't find anyone around town who carries an extension cable I'll try Radio Shack for the connector.. Thanks for the info and the tip. I would like to head out tomorrow 40 minutes before...

    Thanks, I think I'll go with chopping and splicing in with a new extension cable.

    I don't know what 'short leads' means. Is the lead the very end of the cable without the rubber/plastic casing?
  7. Headlight cord frayed and separated from plug

    I have this MagicShine headlight, about 4 years old, been great. However now the wire, right where it meets the plug (to the battery) is frayed and
    broken/separated from the plug. For a while...

    I had probably 2cm of cable to work with and the shifter would not downshift more than 3 clicks. Ultimately the jiggle, shake, poke and shift method is what worked for me, along with spraying some...

    I might be breaking a rule about dead threads here ... but in case it helps anyone, in my case I thinkthe broken spoke problem was caused by the wheel dishing being off. I tried once again to even...

    Had someone at the LBS tell me that those Xerxes tires, while good, also would not fit my frame. Plus they're a bit pricey. I will probably go the CL route to buy used or trade to get more of a true...

    new studded tires, too big for my bike

    I just got a pair of Nokian Hakkeplitta A10 700 x 32 72 Studs for my Trek 1220 that I use for commuting.
    I knew it would be tight, but unfortunately they're just too big.
    The tire rubs on the...

    Wow, great informative responses. Much appreciated.
    I guess I have one more question for now, anyone ride the area around Delbert Rd. and Singing Hills Rd.? That area seems a bit dangerous to me....

    Here in the SW Denver metro area and the adjacent foothills there are bikes on the roads and people are used to it.
    Even up the canyons where the roads aren't very wide, there are plenty of bikes.

    Well, I made it, my first century. This was a very challenging ride for me, took me 8.5 hours (including breaks). There was very little shade and temps reached the upper 80's.

    What about 27 from 192 up to and around Lake Louisa, then back down via 33 and back over to 27? Looks tame enough on the map.
    That would be about 45-50 miles for me. Thanks for the repl(y/ies) by...
